We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, a man-made virus taking over bodies and minds, filling them with one, unstoppable command...FEED.

Mira Grant creates a chilling portrait of an America paralyzed with fear. No one leaves their houses and entire swaths of the country have been abandoned. And only the brave, the determined, or the very stupid, venture out into the wild.

About Mira Grant

Born and raised in Northern California, Mira Grant has made a lifelong study of horror movies, horrible viruses, and the inevitable threat of the living dead. In college, she was voted Most Likely to Summon Something Horrible in the Cornfield, and was a founding member of the Horror Movie Sleep-Away Survival Camp, where her record for time survived in the Swamp Cannibals scenario remains unchallenged.

Mira lives in a crumbling farmhouse with an assortment of cats, horror movies, comics, and books about horrible diseases. When not writing, she splits her time between travel, auditing college virology courses, and watching more horror movies than is strictly good for you. Favorite vacation spots include Seattle, London, and a large haunted corn maze just outside of Huntsville, Alabama.

Mira sleeps with a machete under her bed, and highly suggests that you do the same.

Mira also writes as Seanan McGuire.

I just snagged a copy of this book so my interest in it is at an all-time high. I read the Newsflesh series when I was brand-new to Goodreads and just starting to get into blogging, which is crazy because I’m coming up on my 5 year Blogiversary soon. This series still reigns supreme on my favorite list and I’m so excited to be able to dive back in with new short stories. For those of you who haven’t yet read the Newsflesh series, I would highly suggest these short stories to get a taste of exactly what you’re missing out on.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    Mine is still on the way, darn it, and I’m dying to read it. Seriously, I might die. 🙂
